European Capital of Culture 2020

The opera house of the European Capital of Culture is bringing a real gem to Savonlinna this summer. Jules Massenet's Werther is a delicate, lyrical opera that simmers with late 19th century sensuality.

The team behind the production is sure to impress. Director Fabrizio Melano devoured opera librettos since he was 10 years of age, abandoned his university career for opera, worked for New York’s Metropolitan Opera for 30 seasons and has directed singers from Callas to Scotto, Pavarotti and Domingo. (Not to mention that he founded the Japanese restaurant Cho Cho San in Manhattan, which was famed for its Puccini sushi.) He delivers a slick and minimalist interpretation of Werther.

The director Melano has discovered Slovenian Aljaž Farasin for the role of Werther. The role of Charlotte will be sung by Ivana Srbljan.
